I'm pleased to announce that Jenny Burman will appear again on the pages of LA Observed. Until early last year she wrote the Chicken Corner blog here. Now she will be posting weekly installments of her new novel, "Veronica Street," set in Los Angeles with a strong flavor of her old home area of Echo Park. Here is the first chapter. We hope you will follow along through the summer. Look for new chapters every Wednesday.
